Bravo’s newest show Miami Social, tells the story of seven friends who make up one of the “social circles” of the titular city. Comprised of fashion designers, photographers, promoters and socialites, the seven live and work to “make this city spin”.   Miami Social also tells the story of life for Russian immigrants in one of the most Cosmopolitan cities in the country. Maria Lankina, originally from St Petersburg in Russia, moved to Miami in 2005 and became widely known as one of the most talented freelance photographers in the city. Her work has graced the covers and pages of In Focus, Miami Fashion Weekly and many other national and international magazines. In between her days of photo shoots and event planning, she looks after her 13 year old daughter, Angelika and frequents the chicest nightclubs in South Beach.   From a technical standpoint, the show is beautifully shot and illustrates the gorgeous scenery and the exciting nightlife in Miami’s South Beach area but the first episode was really more of an introduction to the cast, without much focus on Maria or Lina Fidler, the other Russian Lady on the show. Lina is the hot-tempered girlfriend of George, a high-powered mortgage banker and member of the Miami Social circle. Hopefully the next few episodes will focus more on these ladies and their experiences as Russian women in the United States.

While a select few of the ladies who participate in our program do model in their free time, the vast majority of them have never stepped foot on a runway or graced the pages of a magazine. In fact, most of our ladies have average, everyday jobs.   So, why do they all look so beautiful? First, we've made it a point to select some of the most stunning single women Russia and Ukraine have to offer. When you couple that with the fact that European women, especially those from Russia, take great pride in their appearance, it should come as no surprise that the ladies who participate in our program wish to make the very best possible impression with their pictures. That's why many of them invest the time and money required to have their photos taken professionally.   Note: Please bear in mind that some ladies can't afford professional photographs, so when you perform an advanced search, you will find both ladies with professionally taken photographs, and those with more natural or candid photos.

Lilia: We were destined to meet! Our love story proves that there is room for miracles in everyone’s life and that miracles do happen, if you believe in them. I believed that a time would come and I would meet a man who would understand me without any words being spoken; a man who would love me even though I am not perfect; a man who would prove to me that true love is real and it exists. After eight years of being alone, I met the man who had always been in my dreams.   I have met him by chance on the Internet after eight years of loneliness and being a single parent, after eight years of emptiness and frustration. Neither he nor I could foresee this happening. Our first chats, our first letters and our first meeting were so hard to imagine. It was not easy for me, but the outcome made all the effort worth it! If you truly want to be happy, you have to fight through the difficulties and continue to remember that once you find the man who loves you, nothing else will matter anymore. Don’t give up and have faith is my motto and the principles that helped me find my love!   I am grateful to all the people at my agency for all their hard work, endless patience and perseverance even during the times when everyone else around me showed lack of faith. I want to tell you that my example proves that everything is possible should you believe in yourself.

You tell us! A mistake that most men make when pursuing a beautiful woman is thinking they just aren't good enough for her or couldn't possibly compete with all the other men who must be knocking down her door. WRONG! You know as well as we do that EVERY man (including YOU!) has something special to offer a woman. Sometimes you just need the courage to show her.   Many men assume that all women are overly concerned with a man's appearance and how much money he makes? Sure, some are, but we know from experience that most Russian women aren't. In general, Russian women do not place undue importance on their partner's appearance or how deep his pockets are. They love their men for who they are on the inside and what they can bring to the relationship, not what they look like on the outside or how much money is in their bank accounts.   So what do you have to offer one of our ladies? Not quite sure? Well, are you prepared to be completely honest in your relationship, providing your full support whenever it may be needed? If so, you've already got what it takes to make one Russian woman very happy. All you have to do is write her! That's where we come in...

More than likely what you are reading is an Introduction Letter sent by the lady. It's important to remember that the ladies, just like the men, have the ability to send a first-time e-mail (Introduction) to a man she has yet to meet. When you first meet someone, what is it that you talk about? Normally the topics of conversation are your likes, dislikes, personal history, and motivations for wanting to meet someone new. This is exactly what these e-mails were designed by our members to accomplish.   The ladies' capability with the English language may also be a factor as well. While some can speak English eloquently, they may have trouble writing it or comprehending certain words or phrases. Most, if not all, require translators to assist them with their letter writing, which may account for the jumbled and not very fluent tone of the messages.   The process of communicating with these women requires patience and understanding. There are only so many ways that a person can describe themselves without sounding repetitive or trite. One must also consider how the women may view your e-mails, too. When you consider how many e-mails she may receive over time it is only logical to assume that she's heard just about everything there is to say. Yet despite this, they continue to write and look for that special someone. All that we ask is that while using our site you do the same.

Anna: I have been with the agency for almost five years… After some time passed since I got  registered with the agency I became interested in a man who was significantly older than me. He was interested in me as well. We were corresponding, getting to know each other and there was a feeling of love. Then he stopped writing to me without any explanation. I was very hurt and could not stay on the site. So I left to take some time to recover from this blow. I met a man in Odessa, but our relationship did not work out. I came back to my agency and a year later I met my man. I will tell you about him a bit later  I always knew what kind of a man I wanted to be with me.   There are a lot of men out there, but when you have searched for a long time and have been disappointed, when you want to find your soul mate and yet none of the men seem to be the one, you start to give up and lose hope. But there is still a spark of hope left in your heart and you keep pushing through towards your goal. I was told that I did not meet the right man because I did not really want to get married. But the truth was that finding my soul mate was my cherished dream. I even turned down men in Odessa because I took my search on the website very seriously. I could not imagine how I could date a man and at the same time continue coming to chat with other men. If someone came from abroad to meet me, it would feel like I cheated them both. I realized that everything would come at the proper time. Meeting a decent man is worth the wait.   Here is how everything happened. I was online one day and my translator, Maria, was helping me read letters from men. Then all of a sudden a chat window popped up on my screen with a photo of an attractive man inviting me to chat. I thought that most likely he just wanted to chat for entertainment and then would disappear. When I agreed to chat with him, he wrote to me that he read my profile and was interested. Then he just sent me a question after question like during an interrogation  I asked him questions that interested me, but he ignored them and kept asking me more questions. He wanted to get to know me better and decide if I was the type of a woman he was looking for. He simply flooded me with questions. So, that’s how our correspondence started. To be honest, it was hard for me to believe in his sincerity, but Robert did not give up. My translator Maria told me to take another look at him because he seemed like a nice man and we even looked somewhat alike. But as you may know, once you’ve suffered, it is hard to open up to another person. During many months of communication we came to realize that we have a lot in common. We appreciate the same things in people, we have similar interests and so on. When I was returning home after talking to him online, I realized that he was the one and I started thanking God for finding him and happy tears were rolling down my face. After that evening everything changed inside me and I cannot even put it into words. This was a sign from God.   Robert was supposed to come for New Year’s in 2008. I bought a new dress and got prepared for our meeting. But then I found out that he could not make it due to his work schedule. You cannot even imagine how I felt… I celebrated the New Year’s alone in my apartment because I did not feel like going anywhere. I put on my new dress, did my hair and made a wish as the clocked chimed midnight. Guess what my wish was!  I was having a good time and just goofing around 0 I thought that he would want to see me happy and not sad and in tears. I had to wait for our first meeting till spring. It was hard, but we managed. When we finally met, we decided to go to Yalta. It was a big moment for us, because we had a chance to get to know each other more without an interpreter, but with the help of a dictionary. I want to add that he is from South Africa.   Can you imagine that a woman from Ukraine and a man from South Africa found each other.   Smile!Anna and Robert   P.S. Your soul mate will do everything to be with you even if you do not want to move to his country. He will come to you, he will get another job, he will leave everything behind just to be with you. Dear ladies, I understand you very well, I understand that you are tired of waiting and the time keeps ticking. Turn to God and ask him to bless you and to direct you in your search. Work on improving yourself. Perhaps your other half is waiting for you somewhere, but God is waiting for you to change yourself for the better and to become wiser. Or maybe God is looking for the best man for you and that takes time. Be patient and fight for your happiness!!!
